Bacterial antibiotic resistance has become a worldwide challenge with the overuse and misuse of drugs. Several mechanisms for the resistance are revealed, but information regarding the bacterial global response to antibiotics is largely absent. In this study, we characterized the differential proteome of Escherichia coli K12 BW25113 in response to(More)
BACKGROUND Lepidogrammitis drymoglossoides (Baker) Ching (L. drymoglossoides), a member of the Polypodiaceae family, was used in the treatment of numerous diseases. However, none of the potential ingredients and the quality control methods concerning this plant medicine was pronounced. OBJECTIVE To identify chlorogenic acid (CGA) from L. drymoglossoides(More)
We have studied a low-molecular-weight (Mr = 27,200) sulfite reductase from Desulfovibrio vulgaris (Hildenborough, NCIB 8303) with Mössbauer, EPR, and chemical techniques. This sulfite reductase was found to contain one siroheme and one [4Fe-4S] cluster. As purified, the siroheme is low-spin ferric (S = 1/2) which exhibits characteristic EPR resonances at g(More)
Siroheme has been extracted from sulfite reductases and its properties in aqueous solution have been investigated by optical absorption, electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR), and magnetic circular dichroism (MDC) spectroscopy. The absorption spectrum of siroheme exhibits a marked pH dependence, and two pK values, 4.2 and 9.0, were determined by pH(More)
A dissimilatory bisulfite reductase has been purified from a thermophilic sulfate-reducing bacterium Desulfovibrio thermophilus (DSM 1276) and studied by EPR and optical spectroscopic techniques. The visible spectrum of the purified bisulfite reductase exhibits absorption maxima at 578.5, 392.5 and 281 nm with a weak band around 700 nm. Photoreduction of(More)
